Seriously +1! It also waters down the message about a benefit from actually having the module, they could have marketed their premium "G-sync" and also supported a cheaper/more compatible "Adaptive Sync" (or whatever). Instead it sounds like their certified adaptive sync displays need to be upgraded to actually have G-sync, and everyone is horribly confused.

They mean that the monitor has been tested and is compatible with their Gsync capable GPUs and Async works over DP. Aka compatible with their proprietarized Async variant that's half broken and still not well optimized to work with any nonGsync Async monitor. So they are "certifying" them to mark those that work and hopefully learn what they need to change in their driver from those that don't work.

It's all very simple naming.

Adaptive sync compatible makes no sense at all for a monitor to be marked as. It either has adaptive sync support or not.

No one should be buying monitors with a Gsync module. Higher price, less features and less compatibility if you want to use Async. You're actually paying NV an extra to be locked into their ecosystem and use only their GPUs which support Async only over DP not over HDMI.

While gsync has a bit of quirks (figuring out what settings need to be applied on a game by game basis especially) i have heard far worse stories with freesync. I also have to imagine gsync has some sort of optimizations that freesync does not given the custom scaler, but i havent had any testing on a freesync panel either.

1ms ips sounds good, every ips i have seen so far felt too slow, even 144hz one. If ips gets that fast then maybe next time i get ips. My current 144hz tn is crappy colors, i would like better but i also dont want to lose responsiveness.

Yes it's just under 500 EUR, has been reported before. I think they stripped some gimmicks to get the price down from what ever they wanted to overcharge brutally at first. It's still very expensive anyway and there might be a way better monitor with the same panel in upcoming months as well.

What I would do, for a 27" 1440p Nano-IPS with ELMB and a ATW polarizer, maybe throw in dual-layer panel or microLED for better HDR, and a higher nit rating to combat the brightness loss when ELMB is enabled.....a man can dream, in the mean time I'm stuck with this Catleap Q270B that's starting to act a bit funny after being overclocked for 9 years now (that and its only got a single DVI-D output, so I'm SOL when it comes to upgrading my GPU)...

iF i WAS RICH , and wanted to waste money, i'D have 2-3 PCs each for a different screen and game type

I haven't done any side by side of my monitors. If it wasn't a hassle, I might switch them for different games.
